Where does the non-invasive Bamboo come from?
This Bamboo is originally from the Asian forests. Rumour has it that its name is based on the ‘bam-boom’ sound produced by this plant when it is burning. The humid and warm Malaysian climate stimulates explosive growth of this plant variety. In the climate of the Netherlands, Bamboo is also a tough and strong plant that grows quickly. This is not a problem that applies to non-invasive Bamboo; it will not invade all of your garden. This plant is also very winter hardy and green all year round. A very easy-care garden plant!
How do I care for my plant?
Non-invasive Bamboo can be planted almost all year round, as long as the soil is frost free. It will grow well in semi shade. During warmer periods, Bamboo needs plenty of water. Too little moisture will make the leaves curl. Do not forget to fertilize Bamboo either. Organic fertilizers are best; use these 2 to 3 times a year and give the Bamboo plenty of water afterwards. If you prefer to grow your Bamboo in a pot, it is also important to give it lots of water and avoid midday sun. Bamboo is very winter hardy and green all year round!
